ather Of The Bride Wedding Speech Tips

Your beautiful daughter is getting married and as the father of the bride, you need to prepare a father-of-the-bride wedding speech that will make her proud.

You will begin your speech in reply to the best man's toast, which will be directed to you, your wife, and the groom's parents (the father of the groom will also be making a reply). Variations of that toast will occur if there are divorced parents, remarried parents, etc. This will have to be worked out by the bridal couple and the associated parents before the wedding.

This is your chance to say all the wonderful things about your daughter that you've wanted to say. Bring up her wondeful qualities, her special talents, a few fond memories that you share. Acknowledge her mother (and/or step-mother, as the case may be) on having raised a wonderful daughter. Welcome the groom to your family and point out some of his great qualities. Finish with a toast to the bride and groom.

Remember to keep your speech short, within 3 to 4 minutes in length is appropriate. If it goes on too long, you will loose your audience, and there are other speakers, as well as events, that still need to follow.

Here are some quotes that you can use to toast the bride and groom once you've finished your wedding speech:

    "Here's to love, laughter and happily ever after.
    As (Groom) and (Bride) start their new life,
    Let's toast the new husband and wife!"

    "Here's to the bride and the bridegroom,
    We'll ask their success in our prayers,
    And through life's dark shadows and sunshine
    That good luck may always be theirs."

    "May your joys be as deep as the ocean,
    and your troubles as light as its foam."

    "May thy life be long and happy,
    Thy cares and sorrows few;
    And the many friends around thee
    Prove faithful, fond and true."
